  2. Wash all my clothings, take out pillows & bolster for sun-bathing, wash bedsheet and blanket. Change bedsheet.. Dunno why always find odd times to do all these things … imagine on CNY 1st day (when I have not sleep yet too!!) -____-“” But it definitely feel good and clean.. I meant my room!! haha =p
  3. Sleep at 12noon till late evening
  4. Wanted to visit 2 of my grandaunts, but decided to visit them on Sat instead, so I can sleep and rest more =p
  5. Went to guardian’s bro (Uncle Jeremy’s) house where everyone will gather. Usually will have dinner and gathering on 1st Day of CNY. It used to be at my guardian’s place untill they sold their house.
  6. Meet up with my guardian’s family.. aunties, uncles and cousins. I treat them like my own, coz have been growing up with them.. And the little cousins have all grown up.. We got lawyers, nurse, designer… etc Elaine is also married at age of 21! *gosh*
  7. And it is a custom for past 4 years to watch midnight show on 1st Day of CNY. It is Uncle Jeremy’s treat! This year first time I joined them.. And we watched AhLong Pte Ltd =) Crap show.. not one of the best Jack Neo’s movie, I guess.. But Ah Kuang said that it was one of the better CNY movies, compared to Chang Jiang 7 (CJ7) of Stephen Chow and the KungFu Slamdunk of Jay Chow.. So should be ok! haha And plus got my idol – Fann Wong. WeeEEee But I would say Mark Lee acting is very good in this movie! =)
